STP Lego Fundraiser has started!

We are teaming up with Tosa Block Party for an exciting NEW kind of fundraising event featuring customized Lego Spirit-Wear Mini-figures! Each figure will be "wearing" a Maple Grove Mighty Hawks shirt. You will be able to customize the heads, hair, and pants to make your very own one of a kind figure!


This fundraiser is directly tied to our Lego Party which will be held on January 25th. You will pick up and customize your figures at the party.


Make sure to pre-order your figures starting November 1st in order to guarantee you have one at the party! Orders and payments will be due on November 9th. Please make checks payable to Maple Grove STP.


Look for your order forms in your Thursday Folders on November 1st.
